Wellbeing pilot helps tackle depression
An ITN story about an increase in depression due to the Covid pandemic highlighted our successful mental health pilot with inner city Bristol GPs. The scheme, which will run until August, supports patients through expert Recovery Navigators, taking the pressure off busy practices. As part of the pilot, GPs are also encouraging patients to enrol on Bristol Wellbeing College’s courses and workshops.
You can read the ITN story here and hear from Sharon who says that the Wellbeing College “saved her life”. You can also listen to Dr Will Klinkenberg who explains why talking to a GP can make the difference. You can also read more about the pilot here.
A huge thank you to Will and to Sharon.
